I booked this pretty last minute and it was so well worth it. Our guide Ben Big Ben was very good. Very likable, knowledgeable and overall a great conversationalist.
he gave a lot of background and information to help set the scene. I would highly recommend this tour.
I did the 9:00 A.M tour worked out perfectly. We were able to be some of the first through the doors and avoid the crowds. Although we had skip the line passes, it was still great to be ahead of the crowds and enjoy the views without much fuss.
We are really glad we signed up for a tour of Versailles rather than trying to visit on our own. Our tour guide was not only extrememly knowledgable, but she was engaging and entertaining. Well worth the cost. The tour guide meets you at a metro stop and then takes the metro in to Versailles with you. The gardens are enourmous and of course, beautiful Our guide walked with us around the gardens and pointed out various places of interest. We then went to the house and were given an headsets for an audio tour and toured the house on our own. We would not recommend the optional tours for 15 euros. One of the buildings was closed and we were not told this before we bought our tickets.
Loved this tour. Janika from Fat Tire tours was amazing. She knew her stuff and made everything easy for us.
This trip was excellent! The tour guide was a bit over talkative but very informative on his history! Meeting place was designated and train ride was short! The Palace was FABULOUS!

Tour guide Karen from Chicago Karen was awesome...best part was the Royal Gardens...and the self guided portion of the Palace was great...you could take all the time you wanted...and for sure grab a sandwich and drink to take into the garden for lunch!!!
Our tour guide was amazing Janica! She was clearly very passionate about Versailles. In addition, she was super patient to explain extra stories and help folks on the tour take pictures. I appreciated her thorough explanations, including tips for post-tour areas in the city.
Love the place. Beautiful scenery!
Love the stories of King Louis
A place that you would love to visit when you ever visit paris. The garden was huge!!
The guide was excellent!
What an awesome place this is! If you are going to Paris, do not miss visiting Versailles. Our guide was wonderful, and the instructions on how to meet him were clear and easy to follow. Would highly recommend this one!
Our guide Janike made the entire trip worth while for us. This was our fourth tour of the trip and was by far and away the very best. Her knowledge base was impressive and here anecdotal presentation style brought the gardens alive for us. It truly felt that we were back in the court of Louis XIV. She was incredible!
Perfect!!! Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Access was quick and easy. No problems from pickup to drop off.
We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide, Ben was awesome! He was well versed in the history and gave cute little trivia questions for us to play. The train ride was quick and easy. The gardens were amazing and the restaurant was quite delicious. I highly recommend the tour and tour guide to anyone that wants to experience a fun tour. High five to Ben!!!
great tour with Fat Tire Tours. Short train ride and informative tour of some of the many gardens at Versailles. Audio tour of the palace where we walked right in and skipped ahead of the hundreds of people waiting in the regular ticket line. Highly recommend this tour.
Nasiim was awesome! Funny and informative. A guide is a must to really see the gardens.
Really enjoyed this tour! Didn't know a lot about French history and the revolution and felt this was a great introduction to this subject. Really brings it home to learn about it as your walking in the footsteps of Marie Antoinette and Louis the XVI! Our guide was great and very entertaining!
Big Ben was our tour guide and was GREAT! He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. The tour was amazing and the skip the line feature was a must have as the line was huge. The grounds are unbelievable and the palace leaves a person speechless. Suggestion, eat in the palace café, but skip the salad or sandwich and have two deserts! The food was delicious. Not for someone with walking issues. To truly enjoy this experience, try to plan a full day so you have extra time inside the palace as most of the in person guided tour is outside in the grounds. The audio tour inside the palace should not put you off because it is easy to use and very easy to understand. Definitely the tour to chose.
Going on Fountain day was a plus! Loved the tour and then got to stay as long as we wanted in the palace. Skip the line was a great time saver. Would recommend this tour.
I was so happy to have invested in this tour. The lines going straight into the palace was very, very long. Going straight into the gardens first was the key. Ben, our guide, was a wealth of information about the gardens and the palace. He also made sure he gave us key info: restroom locations, eating venues, how to get back to whatever location in Paris after the tour. I wish more rooms of the palace were open to the public, though.
Ben was great was very knowledgeable. Best part of tour was not waiting on a long line to get in.
Fantastic tour! Fat Tire Bikes were fantastic - our guide Neil/Nick? was very knowledgeable and fun. He gave us great insight to how the Palace was built, who lived there and how it was maintained. It was a fantastic day out - the train was easy to get there too.
This tour was great! Our tour guide, Hannah, was amazing and very nice. She did an outstanding job and even kept our 2 teenagers engaged in the tour! THANK YOU HANNAH!! Highly recommend this tour!
